'The Avengers' filming continues to captivate downtown Cleveland

It's lights, camera and Avengers action in downtown Cleveland!

Tinseltown continues to captivate the city with its blockbuster movie magic.

Wednesday proved to be another full day on the East 9th set.

People gathered to watch as Captain America, played by actor Chris Evans, shot a few fighting scenes. Explosions, fires, and hundreds of movie extras rounded out a successful morning on the set.

Many are drawn to the action packed set, as they hope to catch a glimpse of a Hollywood star, or a simply to watch behind the scenes.

"It's exciting because we don't see this stuff all the time, it's great.," said Clevelander Melissa Earp. "I've been here all week standing for a few hours to see a little action going on, but it's better than nothing." 

The movie will hit theaters in 2012.
